#Tsundoku March 27

In 2020 some Coach4aday posts will feature lessons learned by completing, planning, and experiencing 30 day challenges. The challenges include physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional.


If you have no idea what the word TSUNDOKU means welcome to the club.

I will come back to the word in a little bit. I want to explain how I came across it and how it resonated with me.

For the month of March I have 30 Day Reading Challenge. It requires me to diligently read daily in order to finish 8 new books. I listed those books in my March 1, 2020 post. I am happy that my friend Jeff Neelon is also doing this 30 Day Challenge.

I suspect that many people have decided to read more with our lives embracing social distancing. If they are like me you may have started to have books pile up in different places in their homes, including night stands.

The photo below is my night stand.

I want to circle back to TSUNDOKU and its meaning. It is a Japanese word that means “acquiring reading materials and letting them stack up without reading them”.

I saw the word and didn’t know what it meant. So I researched it. I realized that I had a few TSUNDOKU locations in my house. I have vowed to correct.

My vocabulary investigation also helped me acquire motivation to get all eight books finished by Tuesday. The good news is I have finished 6 and have started on the 7th and 8th. I also am eliminating TSUNDOKU from home.

A 30 Day Reading Challenge might help you if you have TSUNDOKU issues.

Leaders are readers!

    Tsundoku is not a condition to try and eliminate….it means to have more books than you can read…Tsundoku is always a good thing…it means your reading horizons are beyond what you can comfortably reach…I have waaaay more books than I will ever read….Seeing them on my shelves prompts ideas, hopes, dreams and solutions to problems…and, I haven’t resisted the lure of ebooks…I have downloaded 635 ebooks….I’ve read all or part of the vast majority…but, you know what, I’d much rather see them on shelves
